Forks Over Knives

 Here is a trailer for a documentary that will be releasing any day now.  You can see where it will be playing in your location here.  I definitely plan on seeing this movie.  This couldn't have been coming out at a better time with my new and personal preferences with eating.





Here is a more in depth discussion about it on the Dr. Oz show.  Good stuff!

I am anxiously awaiting the opening of this movie. I have been a vegetarian for the past 18 years, bordering on vegan and love that this lifestyle is becoming more 'mainstream' giving us much better access to replacement foods, great recipes, choices in restaurants that used to not cater to vegans, and support. I'm still kinda hoping that my food choices one day won't be viewed as a novelty or something to poke fun at...

Watching Forks Over Knives was life-changing for my husband and I. I never dreamed of eating a plant-based diet, never dreamed I'd not want to eat dairy and meat and eggs. Eating better makes me feel great that I'm getting much, much more nutrition from the food I eat. My fatigue and mental fog are gone, my headaches are gone, my joints don't ache. I have lost 21 pounds so far at the rate of about 1 to 2 pounds a week. I am enjoying making many new recipes and trying new foods. Our children are learning to enjoy better quality food, too! An image of what the inside of my arteries must look like keeps me going... I love the idea of reversing inflammation, preventing cancer and heart disease! I wish everyone knew what these researchers have discovered!

What Doctor's don't tell you after a C-section

I have now been through 2 C-sections since writing this blog post and thankfully I've recovered beautifully from both with the appropriate progressions. For those who are new and are just finding me.

WELCOME!

First let me say I did NOT want a C-section. I did everything in my power to avoid the first and even the second. I'm a kettlebell fitness strength and conditioning coach who relies on her body to share, teach, educate, and I was under the impression that having to give birth via C-section would and could destroy my body and career. Boy was I wrong! If you're feeing the same way, start by reading this article I wrote many years ago that still applies today!

Many people have asked and here is part of my experience.  I don't claim to be a medical expert but not only have I successfully healed my C-section, my abdominals are no longer numb, and I've successfully helped others who've had multiple C-sections (even some 20 years ago) find their core again.  I d…

Let's Talk About Butts (Butt "on" Workouts)

To lift or not to lift, that is the question.  Despite the popular sayings, "Strong is the new Skinny" or "Strong is the New Sexy," there is still a large portion of the female population that will shy away from lifting solely due to their fear of bulking up or building too much muscle.  I'm not going to tell you that heavy weights won't help build muscle and I'm not going to deny the fact that some women can build muscle easier than others.  


Let's start with the photo below.  This is a nice example of the female backside that shows two different body types.  The woman on the left falls in the category of an ectomorph, which generally means skinny, little muscle, and a very high metabolism.  She could probably eat what she wants and stay skinny.  If she committed to a butt strengthening and enhancing program, filled with exercises such as squats, deadlifts, and kettlebell swings, developing the butt on the right would still be unlikely.  Through h…

Welcome to the 4th annual Squat Challenge! 


**BY POPULAR DEMAND WE ARE DOING THE SQUAT CHALLENGE AGAIN ON FEBRUARY 1ST 2019**




Why Squat? Squats are one of the most beneficial exercises to practice. I could sit here and tell you how squatting makes you stronger, more conditioned, firms your legs and butt, improves digestion, increases energy and mood, but I'm sure you know the endless amount of benefits. A few people who've participated in the past squat challenges chose to share their experiences which I've shared below.

 So let's just get to squatting! Beginners are welcomed! Join our Challenge Today here and read the easy rules below!
